National Park Scientific Congress

The first Sierra de Guadarrama National Park scientific congress will take place in the center of La Cristalera, in Miraflores de la Sierra, on October 19, 20, and 21. It will bring together researchers and well-known Guadarrama residents who have spent many years working for the conversation of our mountain. The congress will focus on three areas: basic research, applied research, and public use.

The first day, Carlos Montes will speak to us about sustainable science for the management of protected areas, Pablo Refoyo about the biodiversity of vertebrates in the national park, and Helios Sáinz about wildlife. Juan Moreno, Fidel González, David Gutiérrez and Francisco Martín will speak about their work on flycatchers, the GuMNet network, butterflies, and interactions between plants and ants in the context of climate change.

The second day, Paulino Fandos will speak about the handling of ungulates (hooved mammals), Álvaro Hernández about forests and forestry, and Jaime Bosch about the management of amphibians in Sierra de Guadarrama. Isabel Barja, Javier Donés and Ignacio Granados will speak about the wolf, management in the Mountains of Valsaín, and limnology studies in the national park.

The third day, featured Guadarrama residents and researchers like Javier Benayas, Leonardo Fernández, Manuel Oñorbe, Luis Pantoja, Juan Antonio Fernández, Ignacio Palomo, Miguel Tébar and Julio Vías will speak to us about public use of the national park.

We hope that this congress contributes to the conversation of the national park and continues the saga of the magnificent scientific events of the Natural Park of Peñalara.
